Goodbye and no regrets

AFTER more than 46 years as part of The Gympie Times, I today bid this newspaper and you our advertisers and readers goodbye.

Over my working life in here at the GT I have met many people I now class as friends and, no doubt, have upset a few who do not think of me in the same vein. But at all times the number one consideration has been for this community and the people who make it up.

There have been many challenges and a host of great moments and some that have been heart breaking but at all times this paper has strived to present the news in all its forms.

I leave this industry with many great memories. It has given me the opportunity to meet prime ministers and premiers and other notable people but also to work with and meet the people who are the salt of the earth and the real people in our community.

There are many things I will miss and some I will not. Witnessing the carnage on our roads at close quarters and the heartbreak it brings is one such thing.

I have worked with many great people and it has always been a learning experience. Thank you to all for your support over the years and au revoir.
